Speaker's biography

Dr Bivalacqua has an active clinical practice in Urologic Oncology and Sexual Dysfunction. As a member of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, Dr Bivalacqua participates in multidisciplinary approaches to the treatment of a variety of genitourinary cancers. He has a special interest in cancers of the prostate and bladder with an emphasis on organ sparing therapies, minimally invasive techniques (nerve-sparing robotic assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy and robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical cystectomy) and orthotopic bladder substitution (neobladder). Although he has a busy surgical practice, he maintains an active research portfolio in order to improve outcomes of cancer patients. A major focus of his research lab is development of pre-clinical models of urothelial carcinoma to test systemic and intravesical immunotherapies and nano-particular based chemotherapies. Also, he heads the tissue-engineering lab which focuses on regenerative approaches to enhance autonomic nerve function and development of tissue-engineered urinary tissue with the ultimate goal of production of a neo-urinary conduit and bladder.


Dr Bivalacqua's basic, translational and clinical research is funded by peer-reviewed awards and he has recently been acknowledged for his accomplishments in research with several grants including a Career Development Award from the National Institute of Health (NIH), Greenberg Bladder Cancer Institute, and the AUA "Rising Star" Award. He also serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) and a member of the AUA Leadership Program.
